Dr. Lemmon saved my life. Not with plastic surgery, even though he is top in his field. He saved my life when my cancer doctor gave up on me. Dr. Lemmon stepped in because he loves his patients. He is a true healer, a doctor who will go the long distance with you.”

My breast surgeon referred Dr. Lemmon for my mastectomy and reconstruction he has been very caring and treated me like family instead of a patient my husband has gone to every appointment with me and he always shakes his hand. When I was in the hospital he came to see me and kept my husband informed on my issues. I’ve been seeing him since July 2012 till present. Wish he was my primary care doctor. He is a perfectionist and his work shows it.”

Dr. Lemmon was recommended by my breast cancer surgeon & it turned out to be an excellent recommendation! He is a very professional & caring Dr. and took the time to go over any questions or concerns that I may have had & he never appeared to be in a hurry. If I had concerns outside of my appt. time I felt very comfortable to call and visit with his nurse & either Dr. Lemmon or his nurse would get back to me in a very timely timeframe. The surgical center was a very positive experience – definitely better than having to go to a hospital. Would highly recommend Dr. Lemmon if looking for a plastic surgeon. His office help was also very friendly and helpful!”

Best doctor experience I’ve ever had. I actually liked the guy…he was very personable and made me feel totally at ease. He’s very professional. I was confident in his ability to perform the procedure on my face.”

Dr. Lemmon made sure I understood all the steps for my procedure and after my appointment when he began to leave the room he turned around at the door and made sure I knew to call if I had any concerns at all. I would rate him as excellent!!”

I came to Dr. Lemmon in 2012 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and was referred to him by my breast cancer surgeon. We were new to the area so her recommendation to Dr. Lemmon was a godsend! After my mastectomy he patched me up and was very patient when I encountered difficulties. In my opinion, his expertise as a plastic surgeon is excellent and knowing that he has taught doctors at MD Anderson the technique of the tram flap breast reconstruction was very impressive. He never appeared in a hurry and always took the time to answer any questions or concerns I had. I had to contact the office once during a weekend and Dr. Lemmon responded in a very timely manner. When I knew I would be having my last breast surgery I decided to have an arm lift and working with insurance & non-insurance procedures was handled so easily through his office and his office staff were always friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating to help resolve any issues that arose. Would highly recommend!”

Dr. Lemmon did an excellent job. I could not have imagined that the scarring would be so minimal.”

Dr. Lemmon explained all procedures in a way that I could understand. He and his staff always showed me the utmost care.”

Dr. Lemmon was amazing! I felt very comfortable with him the day he met with me. I knew then he was the best choice for what I wanted.”

Caring and compassionate as well as a technically gifted surgeon. Highly recommend.

Dr Lemmon and his team are excellent. They were always available to answer my questions and concerns. I’m very happy with my results and have recommended him to a few of my friends. Thank you Dr. Lemmon!!!!

Dr. Lemmon did my breast augmentation 3 months ago. I’m very happy with all aspects of his care. And today . . . . I am happily shopping for a new bikini top!!! Thanks, Doc!

Dr. Lemmon is an AMAZING surgeon. This man has a gift. I would never even consider using anyone else now.

Dr. Lemmon performed an extended tummy tuck on me 8 weeks ago. To say I am pleased with my outcome is an understatement. He exceeded all expectations I had. He completely transformed my midsection! I spent a year researching surgeons after having a bad experience elsewhere. I am SO glad I did! His office staff is helpful and have always been prompt in answering any questions I have had. Dr. Lemmon has been at all follow up appointments, which is HUGE for me. I would never go to anyone else.

I am both a patient and a nurse who cares for Dr. Lemmon’s patients at the hospital. Hands down, he is the best surgeon and most caring doctor I have met. I give my highest recommendation.

I chose to use Dr. Lemmon after being referred to him by my sister. I live 6 hours away but the drives were definitely worth it! He was great with his explanations and recommendations on my breast reconstruction. Knowing I was not from the area, he and his staff were very accommodating scheduling my appointments, surgeries and post ops. He is a perfectionist and I would absolutely recommend him and use him again!

I could not be more happier with the results Dr. Lemmon gave me for a breast augmentation. He is very professional. Great bedside manner. His surgery coordinator, Janice is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Dr. Lemmon.

I had a mommy makeover and Dr Lemmon was wonderful. He’s precise and to the point when he explained the procedure and took care of me at all my post op appointments. His staff is also very friendly and helpful. I even referred another friend to him and I’ll be returning In the future.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lemmon. He is very professional, and extremely knowledgeable in his field. I could not be more happy with my breast augmentation. He understood exactly what I was looking for and he delivered. His surgery coordinator Janice is a pleasure to work with. She is great at responding to any questions you may have during the whole process. You will not regret going to Dr. Lemmon.

Loved the care and so far the results from my liposuction (2 weeks out) I chose to drive from Houston to Dallas for this procedure. Thank you again for being such a caring and helpful group.

Dr. Lemmon, and staff are awesome. Words can not describe how thankful I am to have had him as my surgeon. Always helpful, and going beyond. Have been seeing him for 1 year for breast reconstruction, and trusted him all the way. Best doctor!!!!!!!

When I first met this Dr I felt very comfortable. His staff is amazing, he gets straight to point, and answers all your questions and concerns. I have been seeing him for the past 4 months. I had a preventative mastectomy, and needed reconstruction. I knew he was the perfect doctor for this. I had tissue expanders placed, one day I had some problems with one of my incisions not healing called office on a Friday night and had him called me that very same night, and help me. Any problems that I’ve had he’s been there to help, him and his staff. Words can not explain how grateful I’am. Now getting ready for part 2 getting these expanders out and getting reconstruction. Going to leave everything in his hands and let him do the magic. Thank you for everything Dr. Lemmon and staff.
